If you’ve got a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 or Galaxy Note Edge with a little AT&T tattoo on its backside, you’re getting a nice surprise this weekend.
Samsung says that Android 5.1.1 updates for the AT&T Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge are rolling out starting today, October 10. No other details about the updates are given — AT&T hasn’t even added these new updates to its support pages yet — but we do know the new software versions that the two phones will have after updating: the Galaxy Note 4 will be on N910AUCU2DOI2, while the Galaxy Note Edge will be on N915AUCU2COI2.
It’s kind of a bummer to see that AT&T’s Note 4 and Note Edge are now getting Android 5.1.1, just as Google has started pushing Android 6.0. It takes time for Samsung to craft its Android OS updates, though, and so it’ll probably be a couple of months before we see Samsung start to push Marshmallow updates. Given that, at least AT&T Note 4 and Note Edge owners are now getting Android 5.1.1 instead of being stuck on Android 5.0.1 for another few months.
If you’ve got an AT&T-branded Note 4 or Note Edge, you can check for your device’s update by going into Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates. Some users are reporting that they’ve already gotten their update, so if you haven’t yet updated, go check for it now. Just be sure you’re connected to Wi-Fi first, because these updates are biggies.
